2015 Time for Global Action Agenda for People and for Planet On Thursday the co-facilitators chaired an interactive dialogue between Major Groups, other stakeholders and Member States. The discussion, with planned interventions by civil society representatives as well as several governments, covered each section of the draft declaration as outlined in the Elements Paper.

Participants highlighted issues including how to ensure development justice, differences of opinion over the appropriateness of “leaving no one behind,” addressing indigenous rights through the indicator framework, information poverty, financial inclusion, the need for the Declaration to provide a framework of elements, and the importance of the scientific community in ensuring the enduring legitimacy of the SDG framework.

The diversity of views and opinions expressed was “healthy,” remarked Co-Facilitator Macharia Kamau. He noted that the interactive format allowed for processing issues in a different way and continuing to learn about the issues at hand.

After a delayed start to the afternoon session to allow governments time to consult on the new discussion document circulated by the co-facilitators, discussions reconvened at 4:25 pm. The G-77 and China called for more time to consult, while approximately 20 other delegations presented their preliminary views on the document.

The meeting will reconvene on Friday, 20 February at 11:00 am.
